Aston Logo 2019 WebThis year's joint SLA and CILIP YLG weekend course - "Building Identity, Building Readers" took place 21 to 23 June 2019 at the Aston Conference Centre, Aston University, Birmingham.

It proved a great success. For more information please see the 2019 Weekend Course page. 

Thank you so much to our sponsors, all the authors, illustrators, publishers, speakers, workshop leaders and everyone on both the SLA and YLG committees (as well as SLA staff) and not forgetting the wonderful delegates for contributing to this success.

As soon as we have permissions for the presentations to be loaded, they will be made available via this website.

Next year's conference takes place at the International Hotel, Ashford, Kent over 19 - 21 June 2020.
